The room is quite spacious, which we appreciated as we could spread out the content of our bags after our long flight from Europe, without stepping on anything while walking around.
Bathroom looked OK, although would probably not age very well.
The bed was big (king size), with a very good mattress, which we greatly appreciated.
The hotel was not so far as we expected from CBD, joignable by foot, even though we felt really tired in the late afternoon because of jetlag.
Breakfast was good, though a bit expensive : the cold continental breakfast looked really average, while the hot and cold american one was nice but more pricey.
We have not noticed any strange goings and ongoings in the evening (but we were usually falling asleep very early). We did not feel out of place in a teenage oriented hotel, except for the one morning when a 15-year old student group joined us for breakfast.
Manager, if you read my comment, please do something quick for the elevators : change the rug, change the wall panel, as it looks old, derelict and smells so very very bad. Every time we stepped in the elevator, we were wondering if there was not a dead rat colony to be found somewhere in it ! It was not acceptable and a real downturn from the rest of the hotel.
For an average price hotel, we appreciated the size of the room and the comfort of the bed, with no absolute downside to it.
